Customer Questions
My iron doesn't produce any steam.

Answer 1: The steam control may have been set to the no steam position. Set the steam control to a steam position.

Answer 2: There is no water in the tank and/or the settings are not set correctly.


Step 1: Ensure there is water in the tank.

Step 2: Set to the appropriate steam and temperature setting - When steam ironing, you must set the steam control to steam and the temperature control to a temperature equal to or higher than the steam symbol on the dial.

The mains power switches off when I switch my iron on or when the iron is in use. Can the appliance cause a power failure?

Step 1: Check that the connection to the plug is secure and not loose and also check how many appliances are using the same output. Failure could be caused by over current in your mains.

Step 2: Check the iron's power cord for visible signs of damage (e.g. kinks, flaring of the braiding). Remove the rest of the appliances and switch it on again.

Step 3: if the mains power goes off again, contact the Russell Hobbs Customer Service Department on 0345 658 9700.

The steam boost function or vertical steam boost function on my iron doesn't work.

Answer 1: The (vertical) steam boost function has been used too often within a very short period.

Put the iron in a horizontal position and wait for a while before using the (vertical) steam boost function again.

Answer 2: The iron is not hot enough. Set the temperature dial to a temperature suitable for steam ironing.

The Spray function or Spray button on my iron isn't working (properly).

Make sure there is enough water in the tank and check that the spray button is able to spring back on its own after pressing.

If the spray nozzle hole is blocked, you can clean it carefully with a sharp needle or pin.

The indicator light isn't working (properly).

Make sure the iron is plugged into a working mains power and set the temperature dial to a desired position.

It is normal for the orange pilot light to turn on and off during ironing. It comes on as the iron is heating up, and goes off when it is hot enough.

Smoke comes out of the appliance.

Some parts of the appliance have been slightly greased and as a result, the appliance may produce some smoke when it is switched on for the first time.

Also, if there is remaining water in the soleplate from the last usage, the smoke observed may actually be water evaporating. However, these will stop after a short while.

The soleplate coating is scratched/worn away.

Your iron has multiple thin layers of coating and light scratches will not impede the performance of the iron. You can continue using the iron as per normal.

My iron leaves shiny patches on fabrics.

Fabrics can acquire shiny patches if they are ironed at too high temperatures. Try a lower temperature setting.

Also, to prevent shiny patches, you can put a cloth (e.g. a tea towel) between the iron and the fabric.

What type of water should I use?

Your appliance has been designed to be used with tap water.

Water drips from the holes of the soleplate during ironing. What should I do?

There may be several reasons for this:

Your iron produces a lot of steam. Steam could have condensed on the ironing board cover, making it wet and cause water marks on your garment when the iron is pressed on it.
Ironing aids or fragrance water could have been added to the water tank. This can cause problems with the steaming function, causing water to leak. Use only tap water or distilled water or a mixture of these two types of water.
Steam setting is being used at too low a temperature - The steam function should be switched to "no steam" when using the iron at lower temperatures or the water tank shoud be emptied.
Steam surge/shot/spray being used too rigorously - try using these facilities more slowly.

Water drops appear on the garment during ironing or drip on to the floor.

The water droplets may appear on the garments when you have steam ironed for a while. This happens because steam has condensed on the ironing board.

Dry the wet spots on the garment and the ironing board cover by passing the iron over them without pressing the steam button. If the underside of the ironing board is wet, wipe it dry.

Make sure you use a mesh-top ironing board with a thick felt material as this minimises steam condensation on the ironing board.

How can I prevent stains on the soleplate?

Ironing synthetics at high temperatures can cause staining when synthetic material is scorched.

Synthetics or synthetic-mixed fabrics can only be ironed at the lowest temperature setting.

Always set the temperature acording to the type of clothing being ironed. If unsure, always start with a lower temperature.

How do I remove the stains on the soleplate?

To remove a stain, wipe the soleplate with a moist cotton cloth without heating up the iron.

For stubborn stains, soak a cotton rag or pot towel in water & lemon juice, then heat up the iron to 'max' temperature and run the soleplate over the rag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iron looks very sleek and is easy to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a lovely looking steam iron and very easy to use. It’s a lot lighter than my old one with a large water tank. I didn’t need to iron both sides of my t-shirts as it seems to do both at the same time which is a real bonus. The vertical steam function is very useful if short of time. It automatically gives the correct amount of steam to whatever you’re ironing, but there’s a handy button for an extra shot of steam if needed. There’s also a self clean button. Lead is a bit too short for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great iron [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This iron gets hot extremely fast, the water tank holds a lot of water with out any of it leaking while using the iron, it glides effortlessly over stubborn creases like denim when using the steam, no steam needed for t-shirts or blouses, it's settings are easy to use and it's lightweight, the only fault is the water jug isn't very big, apart from that it's a great iron, and made it a pleasure to iron

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Russell Hobbs pro 22520 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I would recommend this iron so easy to use. The iron takes tape water unless you live in a hard water area then use distilled water. The steam is very good.Nice to be able to steam curtains which are hung and clothes which are on hangers. The dry ironing performs very well. The Iron is of medium weight and stands well on its heel

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek and Stylish [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Lightweight and visually striking, the iron makes ironing almost a pleasure - almost. Its shape is sleek and the red, visual water level is quite appealing. Filling the reservoir is a little awkward with the nozzle opening upwards as it restricts pouring but it empties easily. The other minor negative is that the electrical cord, while a perfect length has nowhere to coil it up when not in use as some other designs have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight iron, good amount of steam [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Lightweight iron which has a comfortable handle to grip so easy to use. Large water tank (although it was a bit tricky to fill as spout is narrow). Steam holes are located throughout the base so very efficient when ironing. Particularly liked the pointed end with steam holes which made it easy to get into small areas. Downside was the 2m cord (I would prefer a 3m cord as I found this quite limiting). Tried using as a dry iron but found this not so good at removing ceases as iron is so light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best iron I have ever owned! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have brought alot of irons over the years and I can honestly say this is the best one yet! The iron glides smoothly across any material, leaving no creases and a perfect finish. When using the streamer setting, i only have to stream one side of the clothing, which fortunately cuts my ironing time greatly. The iron is light weight and easy to handle! My only fault is that the iron cord is not long enough for me to iron in appropriate spaces, however still serves its main purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended. We always buy irons at the cheaper end of the price range and find they are as good as any others. This one is no exception. Heats up very rapidly and holds a lot of water so you don't have to keep refilling it. The water jug supplied with it could do with being twice as big as it takes at least five jugs to fill it, but you can use something else if you wish. Light and easy to iron with and a plentiful supply of steam. All round, a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek design and easy to use [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love how easy this is to use. It’s not heavy or too big and it glided over clothes without any effort needed. The steam is evenly distributed so it makes ironing a lot quicker. It also has a really good sized water tank so you don’t have to keep refilling.
